Teresa D. Teare and Lindsey A. White won summary judgment for a technology company in a federal disability discrimination case. The federal court found that the worker was not an employee of the technology company, but rather an independent contractor who was not entitled to the employment protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act. It further found that the company had legitimate non-discriminatory reasons for ending the business relationship.
